Direct Vent wall furnaces by Rinnai are a great way to add supplemental heat to your home. These ductless systems can provide comfort while also reducing energy usage. They can also save money by offering a lower operating cost when compared to a traditional ducted central heating system or furnace.
The intelligent design of Rinnai direct vent wall furnaces allows them to continuously monitor the room temperature at the floor level. As a result, they can quickly respond to any drop in room temperature. Within 10 seconds of a single degree temperature drop, the wall furnace will ignite itself and then gradually warm the room to the set temperature. This is done by using modulation technology. That is, the unit continuously monitors the room temperature and calculates the heating demand. As a result, it will adjust its burn rates to satisfy that demand. Because the unit will fire at different rates to maintain the room temperature, the result is a decrease in gas usage and a greater comfort level throughout the room.
These units can be vented up to 13 feet and utilize a discrete vent that measures only 4” in diameter.
We recommend the installation of a Carbon Monoxide detector in the homes of ALL of our customers!
